The degree programme in Mathematics is designed to provide students with a firm basic grounding in the field of mathematics, enabling them to investigate the modern formulation of mathematical disciplines, engage with various aspects of the subject, of a general, methodological and applied nature, and develop the competences needed to assimilate future scientific advances in the field.
The Mathematics degree programme equips graduates to pursue careers in public and private facilities which require aptitudes in abstract reasoning, the formalisation and/or modelling of concrete problems and their solution through the use of the multiple mathematical tools available.
In particular, graduates are qualified to enter positions in banks, insurance companies, survey institutes, consulting or certifying companies, software development and design companies, companies and centres that operate in the medical, biomedical and pharmacological fields, in the ecological sphere and in the research and development sections of large firms, as well as in transport, telecommunications and aerospace sectors.
Graduates can also pursue further studies through a master's degree programme, such as the master's degree in Mathematics.
Application and admission: Open
There is a test to verify the knowledge, which must be taken before enrollment. The verification is carried out through TOLC tests (the tests valid for the registration are TOLC-S and TOLC-I, CISIA OnLine Test).
Additional learning obligations (OFA)
Students who do not pass the entrance examination on mathematics, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.
OFA: English language
Students are expected to attain level B1 proficiency in English.
Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December. Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
The Degree Programme in Mathematics has long been committed to true internationalisation of its educational activities under the Erasmus programme.
We have various agreements in place with European universities. In particular, we have exchange agreements for both curricula with institutions from the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Norway, Poland, Portugal , Slovenia, Spain, Sweden.

For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
